Lt. Gov. Narcissius S. Tan of the Kiwanis International, Philippines South District Division 4A and over-all Chairman of Alay Lakad 2010 explains to the media the upcoming Alay lakad activities during a media forum.
The Alay Lakad walk for a cause will start at exactly 5:30 a.m. at the Don Gregorio Pelaez Sports complex and this will be followed with a Hataw.
The Alay Lakad aims to make monetary contributions and donations which will be used to finance socio-economic projects for out-of-school youth (OSY); undertake projects for their personal development and well-being of their families; enhance their basic knowledge and skills on initiating and managing income generating projects; become responsible and productive citizens; improve their quality of life and provide adequate education.
The beneficiaries of the Alay Lakad projects are classified into two categories: the individual and the group proponents. Under the individual category are those who are economically needy, not more than 21 years old and out of school youth; come from a low-income family; possess basic knowledge and skills to undertake and manage income generating projects of choice; manifest willingness and interest to undertake such projects and possess positive attitude and work habits and must be under the guidance and supervision from Alay Lakad, Inc. and government and private sector or agency who will provide technical and administrative responsibilities.
